Treating a Meniscus Injury

Are you experiencing knee pain that’s interfering with your daily activities? Have you recently suffered a knee injury during sports or other physical activities?

Whether you’re an athlete looking to return to peak performance or someone struggling with everyday activities due to knee pain, our team of experts is here to help you every step of the way.

Understanding Meniscus Injuries

The meniscus is a tough, rubbery cartilage in your knee that acts as a shock absorber and provides stability to the joint. However, it’s susceptible to injury, especially during activities that involve twisting or sudden movements. Common causes of meniscus injuries include:

  1. Sports Injuries: Athletes who participate in sports that involve pivoting or sudden stops and starts are at a higher risk of meniscus tears. These sports include basketball, soccer, football, and skiing.
  2. Degenerative Changes: As we age, the cartilage in our knees can wear down, making the meniscus more prone to tears, even with simple movements like squatting or kneeling.
  3. Traumatic Injuries: A sudden impact or force to the knee, such as a fall or car accident, can also cause a meniscus tear.

Effective Treatments for Meniscus Injuries

At Holistiq Spine & Orthopaedic Clinic, we offer a range of treatments designed to relieve pain, promote healing, and restore function to your knee. Our experienced physicians will assess your condition and develop a personalized treatment plan that may include:

  1. Injection Therapies: Corticosteroid injections or viscosupplementation injections can provide targeted relief by reducing inflammation and lubricating the knee joint.
  2. Minimally Invasive Procedures: In some cases, minimally invasive procedures such as arthroscopy may be necessary to repair or remove damaged portions of the meniscus.
  3. Physical Therapy: Our skilled physical therapists will guide you through exercises and stretches to strengthen the muscles around your knee, improve flexibility, and reduce pain.
  4. Medication Management: We may prescribe pain relievers or anti-inflammatory medications to help alleviate discomfort and reduce inflammation in the knee.
  5. Bracing and Support: We may recommend wearing a knee brace or using assistive devices to provide stability and support to the injured knee during daily activities or sports.
